David Chipperfield behind new Canada Water plans

Stirling Prize winners David Chipperfield Architects and Maccreanor Lavington are collaborating on a major redevelopment of Canada Water for Shard developer Sellar Property Group

The project in south east London will overhaul an existing Decathlon megastore close to CZWG’s RIBA award-winning library and is expected to be submitted for planning next month (November).

It is thought the project would retain the sports store and include around 1,000 new homes alongside new retail and restaurants. In May, residents were presented with alternative schemes featuring a single skyscraper or two shorter towers.

VOGT has been working as landscape architects on the 3 hectare scheme.

A Wilkinson Eyre and Michael Auckett Associates-designed proposal for the dock-side site won planning permission in early 2010 but the development transferred to Sellar last summer after project backer Conrad Phoenix pulled out.

In a statement, the developer said: ‘Sellar Developments, a leading property company currently working extensively in Southwark, acquired the Decathlon site at Canada Water in 2011, and has been working with RIBA Award-winning architects David Chipperfield and Maccreanor Lavington, landscape architects VOGT, and local community groups to develop proposals which make the most of existing waterside features and benefit the local community.’
